    its a level 8 rare that spawns in the champ spawn area in the umbra ML dungons the name of which escapes me.

    Used to make filled bookcases. So like 3 a month will be made. It's really stupid.

    Is snooping required to get the artifacts? I have never tried to grab artifacts... I know how long the rat has waited for this bookcase.

    It is for a good cause Rico. *nods* I have been considering finding room to put snooping back on any way. Just to see.

    At least on Siege, there is some chance of being killed by another player so stealing in doom isn't as bad as the production shards...but it's close.

    By the by, no you don't need snooping to steal from the NPCs...you just random steal, and click the monster/npc. You do have to be right next to them though...la

    I think they in Bedlum. I think they like the doom stuff. Go to the Treasure Hunting Forum because if you ask a question like that in the Thieves fourm Rico might ban you.

    Or maybe it's because the thief forum is for players who have questions about stealing from players. Besides, the is a new stick in the Treasure hunters forum to help crate thieves...la

    **Packer fan hangs head in shame**

    Well for some stupid reason I logically thought to look at npcs in libraries and scribe monk shops for said books. Then I read UO Hall. FIGURES they develop some new craftable and then............disenable it from being craftable or useful or so rare most just shake their heads and think WT ??? I do not mind something being rare but when something is supposed to be crafted by crafters.........WHY THE HECK DO THEY MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE to MAKE whatever at all .............on crafter template or so darn rare...........it does not ADD to carpentry one iota per say...........not really. Flippin figures !

    BLEH !

    Yeah, Cowboy fan may not be far behind...

    Qz I will put you on my list. I will also continue to admonish the Devs for adding craft things that crafters can not do with out killing a dragon! *shakes head*

    I think there is too much complaining about the new bookshelf. There should be more rare craftables, not more common ones. Who likes having the same furniture everyone else has? Talk about keeping up with the Jones'

    Rare is fine. *nods* Make a difficult quest for the crafter, one that does not incur carpal tunnel syndrome, hopefully.

    Now on a normal shard this might not be such a big deal. Well except for the level of spawn on that particular book. What is it again? Three weeks? When you have seven templates to work with per account I suppose it is alright.

    This is Siege. Rico be damned... This shard needs a dedicated crate to get this artifact into circulation. I will be hunting this and other treasures as they come up. Any I find that are in the same place I am will be challenged, they had best be attentive...

    I hope that you get a few cuz I know you been asking for these or similar from the dev. team for ages. :)

    As for myself and probably other gm carpenters we just wanted to be able to make them for others to enjoy these & to have them on our vendors ....more frequently than die to a mongbat crafter templates, thus will make them........... available hardly at all.

    But we can always make them for whomever gets the rare books if they trust us to make them for them.

    Yeh I have done stuff like that before. Often when a player gets some wonder item if they need a crafter to make whatever up I often do it sometimes for small fee for my contribution of making item, or sometimes I may make whatever wowser item it is...for the price of just for MORE WOOD to make more 'regular' stuffs my crafters can make. :)

    Heck I have even been given thousands in gp for folks whom can not purchase a boat from npcs obviously they trusted me with their check for ships *and other things* so in return.......they tip me gp or fetch me something I can not get with crafter template skills. :)

    It all works out ..........somehow.. many a time.

    I had been considering putting stealing back on my template so I could have a stealable vendor going, cause no one else seems to have one going for doom stuff, but id hate to have it without snooping.

    Thanks for sympathizing my librarial accoutrement woes heh.

    No snooping required.
    Books spawn in the champ area of Bedlam, accessed through the crypt. level 8 spawn, prediction is next spawn Friday I believe. You'll need to have done the quest to get into Bedlam.

    I've since found out there are at least 2 sets of these books in Bedlam. The second is in the house opposite Red Death's stable, where Master Knossos (sp) is.

    Oh... A GM Carpenter has 100%/70% exceptional. The book case will retain the color of the wood. You do have a carpenter?

    Rico:
    Bedlam is accessed through the iron maiden in the bloodletter's shop in Umbra, entry conditional on doing a quest obtained from the npc outside.

    None of the new dungeons are 'instanced' except for the peerless areas for which a party must obtain keys, which are gotten in the main part of the dungeon.

    All I have to say is 'Bleh'. I'm not paying for the upgrade to ML when SA is supposedly 6 months away.
